THE NEW WORLD ORDER

Demonical and vocalist Alexander Högbom have parted ways without involvement of neither deep drama nor bad blood.

This has been in the making for quite some time - even if not publically revealed - as already five months ago Alexander informed the rest of us about his need to step back after Scandinavia Deathfest 2019 in order to focus on other things in life.

We respect Alex's decision, want to thank him for all the years in the band, and wish him the very best of luck for the future, whatever it might hold.

As death stands for marching on, we would like to hereby welcome Christofer Säterdal to the ranks as our new frontman!
Chris has proven his quality and dedication in various bands during the years - with Swedish viking-metallers Fimbultyr being the most prominent one - and the rehearsals and recordings done during the summer have made us confident that he is the right one to carry on the torch.

Our live-debut featuring the new line-up will happen at Club Nalen in Stockholm on November 14 before we head out on the “Brazil Ablaze tour”, starting December 5 in Manaus (AM).

A follow up to the highly praised “Chaos Manifesto” album will be recorded during the winter for an early summer 2020 release through Agonia Records.

The path forward looks nothing but victorious!

DEMONICAL vs ENGLAND 1-0

Our three upcoming shows in England in September have all been cancelled! The one to blame is purely and solely the promoter, Gavin Davies and his Eradication Agency, who has been unable to fulfill the contract and stick to what has been agreed.

On top of this, Gavin has shown an utterly unprofessional behavior with not answering e-mails and keeping our agent informed. Not until the tone raised Gavin showed some balls, crawled to the cross and admitted he has failed big time (once again)!

We are sorry for this and those who wanted to witness our HM-2 Stockholm style madness. We might play the UK sometime in the future if some good reliable promoter books us. If not, your loss.

Hail death!

BLOOD AND IRON

As most of you certainly know by now there has been some turmoil regarding the upcoming Stockholm Slaughter festival. Even if the debate has not involved us - and we aim to keep it that way - we are pleased to announce that a solution has been reached and the festival will happen with the line-up intact.

However, MARDUK and TAAKE are not allowed to perform at the Fryshuset venue on Saturday as originally scheduled, instead, these two acts will play an early afternoon show at a different venue on Sunday 29 April.

We want to salute the organizers of the festival for riding out the storm and for showing utter professionalism, dedication and will.

Obedience unto death!
